The original musing was posted practically the day after most of the church celebrates Christ’s resurrection big time — so-called Easter!
So, I found myself musing about how a pastor who might’ve been singing The Day is Growing Bright on Sunday could so suddenly be walking in the gloomy evening shadows.
Now, I learn that the original musing is about the church wandering from Christ. I took the musing to mean that the powers of darkness and of anti-Christ had gained the upper hand, so the faithful church should reach out and up for divine illumination.
Should the church walk away from the Light, Christ would not be amused.
Anyway, now that you’ve interpreted the meaning of your musing, I would agree that Jesus probably mused like you and also like me as he entered Jerusalem.
